The Netherlands could be entitled to a claim of EUR 757.4 million to be paid by the European Union, as a compensation for the negative consequences of the Brexit. Ireland is expected to receive more, based on the proposal that the EU countries and the European Parliament are negotiating. The Brexit fund amounts to a total of EUR 4.24 billion. The distribution by member states was discussed for the first time on Wednesday. There was no consensus yet, so the European Parliament will re-examine this distribution.

The Eurozone industry recovered further in November, based on figures from the European statistics agency Eurostat. Industrial production increased by 2.5% compared to October. The increase was mainly due to the production of capital goods. In October production increased by 2.3%, on a monthly basis. The impact of the new lockdowns will probably have a negative effect on industrial activity of many European countries.
